  • Lackluster by comparison

    Red Tide felt like it was lacking some of the usual mystery and pizazz of the previous episodes of The Mentalist. I absolutely LOVE Simon Baker, but even he was on my nerves in this episode. It all felt contrived; there were so few clues as to who was truly guilty that the ending was almost a shock, though none of the other endings have been. I also thought it felt scattered. There was too much going on in one short episode. It felt like everyone was going in different directions and the viewer was caught in the middle. If The Mentalist is to survive harsh critics, it needs to fix a few things: 1. get rid of Robin Tunney - she tries to play tough but comes off weak or catty 2. come up with more outrageous story lines 3. don't neglect Patrick Jane's history.
